The only silver lining of the ongoing nationwide lockdown that has been imposed in the wake of Coronavirus pandemic is that it has let the nature heal itself, brought down the pollution levels significantly and cleared the air, literally.

The air pollution levels have decreased to such a degree that distant things like the lofty mountain peaks are visible in several areas. In a Bihar village, people recently claimed to have woken to the breathtaking view of snow-capped Himalayan peaks, something they had not witnessed in decades.

The picture of the stunning Himalayan peaks was shared on Twitter by Ritu Jaiswal, Mukhiya of Gram Panchayat Singhwahini, a village in Bihar's Sitamarhi district.

Jaiswal, who claimed to have captured the photo from her terrace, said she had witnessed the stunning view of the Mount Everest for the first from her village.

She shared the photo and captioned it: "We can see the Mount Everest from the rooftops of our houses in Singhwahini, Sitamarhi district. Nature is balancing itself."

There were, however, apprehension about the authenticity of the photo and the claim made by Jaiswal. One of the Twitter users asked her how she was certain that the mountain visible in the photo was, in fact, Mount Everest, to which Jaiswal responded: "Because definitely when we can see snowy peak of the Himalayas, the highest ones can only be scene and everest is in the north east of our village and this pic is of north east. And my husband in their childhood used to see everest in 80s. So we are sure that its the same."

The photo has left people awestruck and has garnered huge response on the social media. The picture was also shared by Indian Forest Services officer Parveen Kaswan, who wrote that Mount Everest was seen from the Bihar village after decades.
